    The Mothers Day Gift Guide

    The Mothers Day Gift Guide

    Yes, we know, it seems a little early to be talking about Mothers day just yet when Valentine's day has only just passed. But March is drawing ever closer which means the special mum day will be creeping up on us in no time as it's a little earlier this year - Sunday 14th to be precise!

    So, for those of you who like to get organised early, or simply have a bit of extra online shopping time at the moment, we thought we'd give you some inspiration for what you could get the mother figure in your life.

    If in doubt, go for a mug

    Emma Bridgwater is a brand much loved by mums all over. So if you're not sure what to get your mum, you can never go wrong with one of their gorgeous mugs. Because who doesn't love a lovely new one to hold their hot drink of choice? Pair it with one of the brands cards to really bring the gift together for a true EB fan.

    Candles

    Whilst we're all stuck at home a lot more than normal times these days, candles are somewhat of a perfect gift we think. It's likely that it's going to get used and therefore appreciated more than perhaps it would usually, so giving a gift of a gloriously smelling home might just be an ideal one this year. Choose from Country Candles for cute tins, St Eval for natural, Earthy scents or Gisela Graham for candles with a bit of fun.

    Sublime Smellies

    Is there a better gift for a mum than a little bit of a pamper? Whether it's hand cream to soothe dry hands from constant washing, or a bar of luxury soap to enjoy in the shower, English Soap Company offer some goodies that will have your mum or mother figure feeling spoilt rotten.

    East of India

    Sometimes it's hard to put into words how much your mum might mean to you. So make it a little easier for yourself by letting East of India do the work! If you know Daisy Park well, you will have heard us speak about this brand countless times when it comes to gifts. They really have the perfect words for almost every occasion and they can add just the right amount of meaning, we love them.

    Don't forget a card!

    The final piece of the puzzle, the bit that brings the gift together; the card. A beautiful card can be just as enjoyable to open as a gift, in our opinion. So it's a good job we've got plenty of gorgeous cards for you to give this Mothers day. From Emma Bridgewater to Molly Mae, humour to heartfelt, there's a great selection for you to write your thanks and send your love in, even if it is just through the post this year.

     

    Fab New Trays & Mugs

    Fab New Trays & Mugs

    Although it can be stressful, hosting friends and family can be such a fun experience. Whether it be for Christmas, a birthday or simply just a get-together, they're often where we make some of the best memories. Not being able to have these for a year now is tough for all of us, but perhaps now we can start to think a little bit about planning them once more. It seems a bit risky, but maybe, just maybe, we can start to get a tiny bit excited about a future filled with good times again.

    One of the best parts of hosting people is getting all your best tableware out, don't you think? Even if it's just having a few friends over for a coffee and cake, it's simply a necessity to bring out your best tray. And wouldn't it be nice to have some lovely new pieces to showcase when we are finally able to do these things again? If you're interest has been sparked then look no further, new trays and mugs from Jamida designed by Asta Barrington are now in the shop and they are simply delightful.

    Bursting with bright colours and bold letters, there's a tray for every personality and every occasion. From the strong women in our lives who are all about the girl power (it's a firm fave here at this female-run business), to the men who love an opportunity to crack out a cold one. There's trays with your favourite tipples written on, or simply ones that spread a bit of positivity with your serving.

    And there's even new mugs too, in the 'Love' and 'Happy' designs so now you can have matching pieces for an even more pleasing aesthetic. Plus they're made of the finest quality bone china so you know they're good quality. We particularly love the vibrant yellow 'Happy' mugs for brightening up some of these dull winter days.

     

    All of this gorgeousness is making us dream of all the possibilities we could serve when we can finally host again... homemade cocktails on the 'happy hour' tray, celebratory bubbles on the 'Yay' tray for the start of a normal life again, we could go on and on. But we'll leave you to have a little daydream yourself!
